Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Eolang, an Experimental Object-Oriented Programming Language Based on 𝜑-Calculus
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Sep 2021
They do have a paper in the repo: https://github.com/cqfn/eo/tree/master/paper
According to it, "𝜑-calculus" is something they made up for the eolang and not a standard term.
Here is my take on that calculus based on reading through section 3 in the paper. Note the paper is pretty weird and likes to make its own notation, so it is possible I got some things wrong:
It is starts with a pretty standard immutable language: "object" is a set of (name, value) pairs; "value" is either object or "data" (like a string, bool etc...); everything is immutable but you can make a copy an object with some attributes changed. There are no concept of "types" -- instead, you define objects with some fields set to NULL (spelled ∅ in the paper). There are also a bunch of term defined, like "abstraction", "application", etc.. -- but they all mean "make a copy of an object with some fields changed".
The "twist" is that the language has no functions per se, instead it defines AST-like structure: there is a syntactic sugar that handles things that look like function applications. So when you see:

Wasm-bpf: Build and run eBPF programs in WebAssembly
2 projects | /r/Cloud | 14 Feb 2023
Cross-language support for over 30 programming languages for eBPF user space programs
I think [...] the "future of computing" is going to be [...] CISC. I’ve read of IBM mainframes that have [hardware instructions for] parsing XML [...]; if you had garbage collection, bounds checking, and type checking in hardware, you’d have fewer and smaller instructions that achieved just as much.

Nvidia Security Team: “What if we just stopped using C?”

Just about every language can compile or transpile to WASM:
Build a Shopify Function using AssemblyScript
3 projects | dev.to | 7 Oct 2022
There are also curated lists of languages that compile down to Wasm available on Github, so there is a ton of opportunity to choose your own adventure.
We're working on a new WASM/Rust scripting system. Here I'm playing around with a script that changes the day/night cycle.
5 projects | /r/rust_gamedev | 29 Sep 2022
My current plans are to investigate TinyGo / C# NativeAOT-LLVM / other languages that can compile to Wasm once our host side stabilises a little bit (lots of churn right now!)
Yeah, it's pretty cool. Here's a nice list of all the repositories and stuff like that
helix - A post-modern modal text editor
8 projects | /r/rust | 5 Jun 2022
It’s planned to use WASM, which would allow to use basically any language you’d want (ok, any lang having a WASM compiler or VM), including Lua.

While waiting for placement at Andela, I started something. I wanted to create a community of developers who had already worked on WebAssembly projects in the past. A bit of a back story is in order now. During my exploratory phase before I settled for web development, Web Assembly was announced. So on a whim, I created a Repo to keep track of languages that compile to web assembly. The repo ended up getting over three thousand stars. I honestly didn’t expect it to blow up as much as it did, but it did. That feat fueled my interest in Web Assembly. As I was saying, I wanted to gather Web Assembly developers together for a purpose - to create a common web assembly runtime, a canonical runtime. My attempt at community building didn’t go so well. I sent a couple of emails, and DMs to no avail, or so I thought. It was during this time that Syrus Akbary reached out to me, he pitched the idea he had to build an awesome web assembly runtime, Wasmer, and that he would want me to be involved. He was really excited, and so was I. The only thing was that he said he had to lay down some of the groundwork first. So he worked on it for about a month. Now that I think about it, I should have stuck to him while he laid down the work because when he showed me the progress he had made, I was awe-stricken, but also disadvantaged. A lot of work had been done. Here we were trying to build the web assembly runtime that would take the world by storm, but my knowledge of Rust was meager. Keeping up was hard. Eventually, I had to leave the project, he was incorporating Wasmer as a company, so relocation was being discussed but I wasn’t interested in going to the US. But I think the major deciding factor for me was that I didn’t really align with the management of the project.
